A century old curse forgotten by time. A sleepy town cut off from the world by an ominous chasm. And a girl with the heart of a warrior.
The town of Justice Falls is slave to an annual tithe, but only those with the sight recall the true price of survival. As one of the gifted, Wynter Ashfall has made peace with the curse, for when the silver riders climb out of the chasm in the dead of winter, there is no force on earth that can stop them from claiming their cargo.
But when the man who holds her heart is marked, there is nothing she won’t do to get him back, even if it means climbing into the pit itself. With Death as her guide she must navigate a realm forbidden to the living, a place where every creature hungers for her soul and nothing is as it seems.
In a world where time has no meaning, time is running out, and Wynter must make a choice— finally claim her heart or find the courage to let it go.
Let the tale begin…
A dark reverse harem romantic fantasy with horns and teeth, Slavic gods and immortal fey. #WhyChoose

Horned guy strode toward me, and a fresh wave of adrenaline flooded my exhausted system, quaking me, turning me into a trembling mess. My limbs were uncoordinated elastic as I tried to flee, and then I was trapped in his shadow.
“This one is mine.” His hand fisted my hair and yanked me to my feet.
A short scream made it past my lips before I clamped them closed, blinking back tears of pain. He forced my head back, looking down into my face with a blood spattered one of his own. High cheekbones, full lips, aquiline nose and eyes like fire. Long, dark hair brushed my cheek—his hair, tumbling around the roots of his horns.
He raked me with that blistering gaze, lip curling slightly in satisfaction, and then he leaned in and licked me. One long stroke from the base of my neck to my temple. A shudder ripped through me, and heat bloomed in places it had no right blooming. What was this? What was he?
“Mine,” he said again, but this time, his eyes were slits of flame.
He looked human. Maybe … Maybe he could be reasoned with? “Please …” My voice was a trembling whisper. “Please don’t hurt me.”
Oh, God. I didn’t want to die. Not now, not like this.
He laughed, short and sharp. “Foolish human. In Nawia, there is nothing but pain.”
